The Championship is being played at Crail Golf Club in the East Neuk of Fife.  The competition normally played over 36 holes was reduced to 18 holes due to the very heavy rain.  Stirlingshire qualified in 3rd place and will play the Lothians in the semi final on Sunday morning. The other semi final is between Fife and Glasgow.

2. Fraser Moore (Glenbervie).

3. Ryan Campbell (Falkirk).

4. Stuart McMehen (Falkirk Tryst).

5. David Buchanan (Falkirk Tryst).

6. Mark Hislop (Glenbervie).

After a practice round on the Craighead course on the Friday , each player plays 36 holes stroke-play on the Saturday ( 1 round on the Craighead and the other on Balcomie Links). Each of the sixteen Scottish areas compete , with the best four teams progressing to the Sunday matchplay stages.

Last year at Blairgowrie , Stirlingshire qualified as in fourth position , competing in the matchplay stages for the first time. They were beaten by the eventual winners , Perth and Kinross but beat Renfrewshire in the third place play off to win the Bronze medal.

Best wishes to the selected players.

 

 

Graeme Robertson Narrowly Wins The Battle Trophy at Crail

 

Graeme Robertson

Graeme receiving the Battle Trophy from Scottish Golf Union Vice President Ian Howarth

Scottish Internationalist , Graeme Robertson (Glenbervie)  secured a one stroke victory after 72 holes in last weekend’s prestigious Battle Trophy over the Craighead Links at Crail Golfing Society.

He made it difficult by opening with a first round of 81 , dropping four shots over the last three holes in blustery conditions. On the Saturday afternoon , he put together a superb 69 to make the cut.

On Sunday morning he carded a solid 72,but a final round 69 which was the best score of the afternoon in windy conditions proved good enough to give him victory by a single stroke.

Congratulations to Graeme.

Fife v Stirlingshire Boys Team Match

The first team match of the season was played on Sunday 21st April against Fife  over the St. Andrews Jubilee course.

The weather was dry but windy but all the boys were looking forward to play at the home of golf. Fife only had 8 players so our 2 youngest players Thomas Craig (Falkirk)and Craig Jackman (Dunblane New) played together and both enjoyed the day.

After 9 holes things were looking good up in most matches. Jack Hill (Callander), his first match for the County had a great victory over Sam Nicholson from Ladybank with a 5&4 win.
Jamie Hunter (Falkirk Tryst) won on the last hole. Callum Bauchop (Glenbervie) won 3&1 against John Paterson from St Andrews.With the first 3 games won things were looking good, next game was Stuart Murray (Falkirk) with a gutsy half match Against Greg Cessford from Balbirnie. Jamie Simpson (Falkirk) lost 4&3 against Ryan Brown from Dunfermline. Stuart Irving (Falkirk) won 5&4 against Jack Walsh from Kirkcaldy. Next up was Ben Craggs (Glenbervie) with another great display ,Ben won 5&4 against Markus Rikard from Cupar. The Last match was a closely fought match between our own Blair Carnegie (Glenbervie) and Lundin’s Young talet Niall McMullen, the match hung in the balance but after so many great recovery shots from Blair the game finished at the 17th with Blair winning 2&1.

The Final result was Stirlingshire 6 I/2 to Fife 1 1/2.

A great start to the season for the boys and looking forward to our next match on the 26th of May which is a West of Scotland Boys League match against Ayrshire at Falkirk Golf Club.

Stirlingshire “A” Team Against The Lothians

Stirlingshire played their annual friendly match against the Lothians at Glenbervie Golf Club on Sunday 7th April.

Considering that the match was played in bitterly cold conditions with an easterly wind , the golf generally was of a high standard. The result was always in doubt and was only decided by the final putt of the last game  from 6 feet on the 18th green.  Eric Gall of Falkirk Tryst narrowly missing for birdie to lose by 1 hole to Gary Corrigan of Greenburn which left the result tied at five points each.

Stirlingshire finished strongly in a number of tight matches , including David Buchanan (Falkirk Tryst) , winning each of the last three holes to finish all square ; Mark Cox (Glenbervie) birdying the last two holes to win one up and Tommy Morrison (KIlsyth Lennox) birdying the last to win 1 up . Special mention should also be made of Glenbervie Champion , Colin Mundie who managed a half match playing at number two ; recent Scottish boys semi finalist , Ben Craggs (Glenbervie) , making his “A” Team debut who won by 4+3 and Iain Munro (Stirling) who won by 4+3 playing at number 9.

Many thanks to all the Stirlingshire players , win lose or draw. The Lothians side always provide a tough test and today was no exception.
